Go further into the wilderness, for a full arctic dog sledding adventure! A seasoned musher will take you by dogsled to the arctic fjord and tundra, to search for the Northern Lights. Travel naturally by dog power, with only the sound of the snow, the huskies and the arctic wind. Nature covered by snow, a frozen fjord beneath you, a team of strong huskies in front, and a beautiful star-studded sky above. If you are lucky, the Northern Lights will make an appearance.
As opposed to the pine forests of Rovaniemi and Finnish lapland, in Kirkenes you find the sparse and majestic arctic landscapes, with mountain plateaus, white tundra and long fjords, which are typical of Finnmark and Northern Norway.
Our alaskan huskies need neither fuel nor incentive – they live to run. Huskies are a hardy breed, bred for both surviving the harsh arctic climates and running over long distances.
On this tour we will go for 2 hours dog sledding. During this time you might have a great chance to spot the Northern Lights.
